Has anybody any suggestions as to which lifeboat Adele Nasser and the Dolings may have left the Titanic. I saw an article (I can't for the life of myself remember where) that claimed the Dolings left in lifeboat 10. Adele Nasser is a complete mystery.

Best wishes

Dear Cameron, Mrs Nasrallah and the Dolings are rather enigmatic in this respect. I have never seen an interview of any sort, they are mentioned by nobody in the lifeboats or anything like that. Second class passengers tended to leave from their promenade-deck area, however; boats 9, 11 and 13 on the starboard side held a few, as well as boats 10, 12 and 14 on the port side. There were some in No 16 and perhaps the Richards/Hockings in boat 4, but that's it. I have a feeling the Dolings left in one of the earlier starboard boats, i e 9, 10, 11 or 12, but there is of course nothing to prove this.
Mrs Nasrallah had to leave her husband, which makes the port boats a far more likely alternative for her. She probably left in 10 or 12, but again, this is only a guess. Some ladies had to leave their husbands/friends at boat 11 as well; the sailors and officers thought the boat was full. It would be very interesting if you found the article stating the presence of the Dolings in boat 10.

Best regards,
